I think the H1N1 viruses are resistant to tamiflu,,they use Flumadine or amantadine, other antivirals. But I read the cdc memos on this outbreak and they didn’t mention antivirals and which ones worked.

Have to run out, but is there a link where it states that this strain is “perplexing” - having both avian and swine dna?

Thanks.

Please provide a link... We’d love to read more about this. Having both swine and avian DNA would seem to indicate the virus was engineered in a laboratory.

I heard a local report that it had genes from human, bird, and swine flu. How does such a thing occur? Is this Bio terror?
